Pearls from artists* # 402
*an ongoing series of quotations – mostly from artists, to artists – that offers wisdom, inspiration, and advice for the sometimes lonely road we are on.
Rodin was lonely before his fame, and perhaps after the fame that came to him still lonelier. For fame is actually only the sum of all the misunderstandings that gather around a new name.
Rainer Maria Rilke quoted in Mary Gabriel in Ninth Street Women
